Big perch caught dropshotting

England feeder international Rob Wooton showed he can turn his hand to any method when he banked his biggest–ever perch.

The Shimano consultant and reigning UK Champion was fishing a stillwater in the midlands when he adopted the ever-popular dropshotting tactic to net the fish, but unfortunately he’d left his scales at home.

The perch took a small white lure that was fished in conjunction a braided mainline, 0.18 mm fluorocarbon and a size 10 hook.

“This is the biggest perch I’ve ever caught and it was just such a shame that I didn’t have anything to weigh it with because it could have been pushing the 4lb mark,” said Rob.
